I shot Neil & Liz’s engagement session in Auckland last year (which you can check it out here). Neil and Liz are really chill and relaxed in front of the camera, as well as being all round great people. They make for some pretty ideal subjects! Needless to say, I was pretty excited to hang out with Neil and Liz again at their vineyard wedding on Waiheke Island.
Neil was waiting for Liz to arrive so that I could photograph their first look. Did I mention he was waiting at an epic Tuscany style villa? Seriously, so incredible! My favourite moment of their first look was when Liz walked up to Neil and cheekily pinched his butt! Talk about an attention grabber! During the couple’s shoot, Liz’s veil was going crazy in the wind. The veil was all up in Neil’s face making for some pretty hilarious moments.
Neil and Liz’s ceremony and reception was really intimate with about 30 guests and no bridal party. Those tight knit feels really made me feel like I was a guest.
The evening light was super epic, so I snuck the couple out at sunset for a few more photos!
Thanks for an amazing day guys!
